“Beautiful cathedral”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

It is a very beautiful cathedral however so much money must have been spent in it's construction and for the present day maintenance. One of the most extravagant cathedrals I have been in. Try to go to a concert as the acoustics seem to be top notch. We were asked to be very quiet as the sound really travels and I can only imagine what a choir or orchestra would sound like in there.

“Beautiful church with Connamara marble floors”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

The Cathedral was very impressive and the floors were incomparable. They were made of Connamara marble. The church itself was enormous with many places to light candles and pray.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Beautiful structure, location,statues gorgeous,liked that you could light real candles and pray quietly infront of different saints.Nice little gift shop as well.About a 10-15min walk from town centre or take the hop on and off trolley (can catch it hourly across from TK Max)and it stops there and have a look and get back on to tour other sites.
